Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Hyaluronic Acid

Ten years ago, you’d probably never heard of Hyaluronic Acid. But now it seems everyone’s talking about this hydration support hero.

If you’re new to Hyaluronic Acid (welcome) or you’re trying to understand how to use it alongside your other beauty supplements and products, you’ll likely have some questions, like:
● Can you use Hyaluronic Acid with beauty serums containing Retinol?
● Do you need to wear sunscreen with Hyaluronic Acid?
● Can people with sensitive skin use Hyaluronic Acid?

If you have all the questions about how to use Hyaluronic Acid and what Hyaluronic Acid does for skin, we’ve got your back. Read on to find answers to all your Hyaluronic Acid questions so you can decide if it’s right for you.

Can you use Hyaluronic Acid with serums containing Vitamin A Retinol?

Absolutely. There’s nothing about either Hyaluronic Acid or topical Vitamin A Retinol that suggests you can’t use them together. In fact, it’s quite a common and popular skin-loving combo.

Using too many beauty serums on the face including topical Vitamin A Retinol, may cause skin dryness. Using Hyaluronic Acid may counter this dryness by supporting skin hydration.

Can I mix vitamin C serum with Hyaluronic Acid?

The answer to this one is similar to the question, “Can you use Hyaluronic Acid with topical Vitamin A Retinol?”

That is: yes, go for it.

Many topical skincare products include both vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. That’s because they can have complementary effects on your skin. Much like with topical Vitamin A Retinol, too much vitamin C can also cause dry skin, which Hyaluronic Acid can help to balance.

Is Hyaluronic Acid safe in pregnancy?

Generally speaking, you can use Hyaluronic Acid serums on your face while pregnant. However, if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you’ll need to skip the oral Hyaluronic Acid supplements.

*Always check with your Healthcare Professional.

Do you need to wear sunscreen with Hyaluronic Acid?

Even though Hyaluronic Acid isn’t known to cause skin reactions, you should absolutely always wear SPF every time you walk out your front door. It’s beauty 101: SPF always, no exceptions.

Can I use other skin hydration products with Hyaluronic Acid?

Yes! Hyaluronic Acid is a friend to almost everyone in the beauty world. Hydration all round!

Can people with sensitive skin use Hyaluronic Acid?

Depending on your skin’s sensitivity, some topical beauty products may not be suitable for your skin. Happily, Hyaluronic Acid capsules aren’t one of them. If you still want the same benefits of topical Hyaluronic Acid, but want to avoid worrying about possible skin reactions, oral Hyaluronic Acid is a good option.
